2019-2020 agricultural cycle

Temperatures in autumn were mild and rainfall was normal for the season. After a wet, mild winter with many persistent fogs, a very rainy spring arrived which produced a considerable shift in the bunches, reducing production. The continuous squalls and droughts that crossed the peninsula produced rainfall that doubled the normal rainfall for this cycle. At the beginning of April a frost again reduced the production. May had a bit of everything... the beginning of mildew, hail on the 29th,... June continued with almost tropical conditions due to the range of temperatures, rainfall and humidity; with a lot of effort, management of the vegetation and seven copper and sulphur treatments we were able to control the fungal attacks, it is fair to say that the episodes of cierzo (local wind) after the rain were of great help in eliminating the humidity. After a very dry and hot summer, it was quiet, a very high average temperature and little rainfall led us to September where a slow and complete ripening of the clusters was completed.
